Whether you are male or female, a mom or career woman, single or more mature,
injectables are treatments that can be tailored to you. Soft tissue augmentation through injectables are
popular since they offer practically instantaneous results with little downtime. Injections have been given
to help with crow's feet, the frown lines, the lines around the lips and also to plump up the lips.
BOTOX® is the only FDA approved neurotoxin for
facial use, and when injected into muscles can effectively treat frown lines and crow's feet.
Most commonly performed in the area between the eyebrows, to soften and smooth
the lines that cause an angry look or frown. Results usually last from three to four months.
Dr Edween will inject enough Botox to get the desired effect on the wrinkles,
but still allow for some natural facial movement.
Soft tissue fillers
Soft tissue fillers are injectables which are placed in the areas of the face which have lost volume and fullness.
They help plump up fine lines and restore a more smooth and youthful appearance. There are a variety of fillers
that are available, and sometimes you may need a combination of products to get the best restoration to the area.
